China

I ran a consultancy called Access China Limited in Jersey and London from 2009-2018 providing “intelligence, strategy and support to get you to the heart of China.” Better known clients included UKTI, PwC, HSBC, Lloyds of London, Burberry, Coutts and the London School of Economics.

The consultancy work was based on the premise most business ventures with China struggle not for technical reasons but as a result of weak relationships. Consequently, my work was focussed on education, training and advice on how to develop strong relationships with China.

This work led me into a new venture called “Wo Hui” but the following resources developed for Access China are still available.
